[FLASHBACK: Atlanta Radio Tea: Frank Ski Out, Ryan Cameron “In”… ]
Cameron brought on his traffic guy, Crash D, and a newbie by the name of Kendra G as his sidekicks for the morning show spot.
Unfortunately, the numbers haven’t been too good since Cameron took over the morning show throne and he’s apparently making changes just in time for Christmas.
According to Rodney Ho over at the AJC,
Just days shy of Christmas, V-103 has decided to shuffle the year-old Ryan Cameron morning show around, dropping two major players, Kendra G and Christopher “Crash” Clark.
The brass there felt changes were needed with ratings falling in recent months by alarming levels.
The latest four-week Nielsen ratings showed Cameron’s show in fifth place among 18 to 34 year olds, a place V-103 has not been since I began covering radio in 2001.
Rick Caffey, the general manager for V-103, WAOK-AM and 92.9/The Game, confirmed the news about Kendra and Crash’s departures but declined to say anything further, citing personnel policies.
Replacements have yet to be announced.
Apparently the numbers have spoken and Cameron fell off amongst the younger listening audience. Ho reports that Cameron’s job isn’t in jeopardy, but V-103 management ‘is clearly looking to bring some new people in and try to reconfigure Cameron’s show in 2014 and rightsize the ship’.
